From the barren streets of middle-America come SHAVED WOMEN. Reigning as the supreme harbingers of chaos in Saint Louis, Missouri, this nihilistic quartet has risen to the top through an effective mix of brutal noise rock and self-destructive hardcore punk. Informed by the caustic nature of small city-towns, the band focuses its feedback-drenched dirge into a cross-section of existential anxiety and landlocked depression. With the ability to simultaneously smolder and combust, SHAVED WOMEN seamlessly blend the warring guitar riffs of Black Flag, the rabid mania of The Jesus Lizard, and Drunks With Guns’ reckless abandon. Singer Ben Salyers’ animalistic vocal approach barrels in the red with self-loathing rage over guitarist Chris Eck’s grinding walls of feedback. Referencing the buzz-saw warp of Black Flag’s Greg Ginn, Eck weaves through a maze of discordant riffs while maintaining total control of the band’s uncompromising progression. Anchored by the dialed-in rhythm section of bassist John Birkner and drummer Tom Valli, the band easily transitions from erratic breakneck speeds to a headstomping trench crawl with metronomic vitality. The band’s unmatched tenacity results in a bevy of AmRep-style breakdowns hinged on unforgettable mid-tempo hooks and complete brainwave annihilation. This will be their second-to-last ever show!
TRAUMA HARNESS hails from the surrounding area of Saint Louis, Missouri and fling back and forth on a bipolar emotional spectrum of dark hopelessness dirges to uplifting noisy pop.
SCUZZ MASTER are a relatively new Louisville band, full of rock n’ roll abandon. You might have seen them open for White Reaper and Anwar Sadat at Zanzabar recently, but if you missed it, here’s your next chance to see them destroy!
